We have another Gold Sponsor!
Hawk-Eye Innovations are supporting C++ on Sea and will be exhibiting during the conference.
But who are they, and what do they do? Hawk-Eye is a leader in sports technology.
Think ball tracking in high-profile games like professional tennis - including detecting whether a ball is in or out.
But they do much more than that. Do check out their website.
And if you're looking for a new role, or might be tempted by something different -
they are hiring for C++ software developers
across two groups - their video platform SMART and the graphics group who are working with Unreal Engine.
Plus other roles.
As well as offering an interesting, cutting edge, field of work - they offer excellent benefits.
We're thrilled to announce that the full schedule for the conference has now been finalised and published.
Of course, when I say, "finalised", that doesn't mean it definitely won't change again, but I don't expect much movement.
You'll notice that day two (Tuesday) has four tracks.
As mentioned before, the response was so great that we felt we had to put on an extra track.
Note, also, the Lightning Talks at the end of day one.
We'll take submissions for that closer to the time of the conference - or at the conference.
If you haven't done so already, please sign up for update emails (very occasional) and/ or subscribe the RSS feed for news.
This is the best way to be kept up-to-date (as well as to find out when those all-important Lightning Talk submissions open!)
The first track slot of each day is a 90 minute session. The rest are 60 minutes.
Most of the breaks are 30 minutes to give sufficient unpacking downtime and/ or socialising and networking -
which we consider one of the most important and rewarding parts of any good conference.
Tickets are available now.
We're excited to welcome JetBrains to our list of Gold Sponsors.
Although the conference chair, Phil Nash, is also Developer Advocate at JetBrains, C++ on Sea is a separate venture,
so we're especially pleased to strengthen that connection by having the JetBrains team join us officially as sponsors.
They'll also have a stand at the venue and I can say, from experience, they are always interesting to talk to.
Most developers are familiar with JetBrains, who first entered developer tool canon with IntelliJ IDEA - a Java IDE -
and later ReSharper, for C#. But now they have a plethora of IDEs covering almost every popular language -
including three for C++: CLion, AppCode and ReSharper C++.
But they also have other important tools and services, such as the continuous integration system, TeamCity,
and issue tracker YouTrack.
Check out all the products with 30-day free trials, or free instances of TeamCity, for instance -
or just come and chat to team during the conference.
